When the term ‘pregnancy loss’ is used, it is most often associated with a miscarriage. There is a type of pregnancy loss that is rarely discussed or even known about; termination for medical reasons. Woman often hope that if there is something wrong with a pregnancy, than nature will take over and the result will be a miscarriage. Once woman enter the second trimester, they typically assume (rightfully so) that their pregnancy will result in a healthy baby. This blog is to spread awareness of what it is like to receive a poor perinatal diagnosis and the decision that couples need to make for the health of the mother or their unborn child. The grieving process for this type of loss is not only very lonely, but feels almost taboo to discuss. I hope this blog helps grieving parents feel less alone either in their decision process or after they have had to make the heartbreaking decision.
